At Home in France: Eating and Entertaining with the French Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Invited to venture beyond the portals of 18 very different houses from every corner of France, Christopher Petkanas describes his hosts - countess and dairy farmer, gardener and cookery writer, wine grower and decorator - their homes - from a Provencal farmhouse to a Parisian apartment - and their food - from foie gras to saucisson. Accompanied by anecdotes and illustrations, the book celebrates the French traditions of cookery and entertaining. Each chapter concludes with a set of recipes from the menu described and pictured in the text.

Synopsis:

The French, more than any other nationality, have refined the art of entertaining. Whether they live in a humble cottage or a chateau, and serve cuisine rustique or haute cuisine, they know exactly how to welcome guests and set a lovely table loaded with delicious dishes. Visit eighteen very different households, from Brittany to Provence, from farmhouse to apartment. Among the places you'll go and the foods you'll hear about — and perhaps try, using one of the 70 recipes here — are a painter's residence in Aveyron, to eat stuffed duck; a cheesemaker's house in the Vaucluse, for an assortment of charcuterie, lamb, and orange chocolate cake; and a bull breeder's dwelling in the Camargue, where seafood is on the menu.

Synopsis:
